I'm a life long carb lover. I grew up on huge bowls of mashed potatoes, hot biscuits, homemade cinnamon buns, apple crisp, and cinnamon toast. I'd rather have a bowl of rice than a steak. I'd rather have a stack of cinnamon toast than a piece of chocolate cake. I'd rather have a heaping plate of mashed potatoes and stuffing than any amount of turkey or pecan pie during the holidays. I like fruit and veggies and proteins. But I really LOVE comfort carbs. And it's so hard to limit portions!
A lot of my WW points go towards high carb items as named above. I'm managing to stay within my limits but it's not much fun. Any suggestions on something that tastes super-carby but isn't? I don't mean sub-ing mashed potatoes with smushed cauliflower. I mean something that really satisfies like an old fashioned carb?
The best I've really come up with so far is to make turkey vegetable soup with rice and barley in the broth. I'd love some more help - otherwise I can use 75% of my daily points on dinner time's mashed potatoes alone!
